Obama: New Medicare ad

The Obama campaign is out with another Medicare ad, hitting Romney for wanting to change the entitlement to a voucher program. One problem with the ad is that it implies that the changes will take place for current seniors, when it does not.

The Obama team is out with a snarky web video previewing the Republican convention, calling it a “convention reinvention” and “the do-over.” 

The Obama campaign on Romney’s birth certificate joke: “Throughout this campaign, Governor Romney has embraced the most strident voices in his party instead of standing up to them,” Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt said in a statement. “Governor Romney’s decision to directly enlist himself in the birther movement should give pause to any rational voter across America.”

Former Republican Florida Gov. Charlie Crist endorsed Obama. The political world shrugged with this announcement over the weekend. It’s really striking how quickly things can change. It was just four years ago when Crist’s endorsement was credited with John McCain’s win in the Florida GOP primary.
